rpm-ostree Module for Startingpoint¶
rpm-ostree module offers pseudo-declarative package and repository management using
The module first downloads the repository files from repositories declared under
/etc/yum.repos.d/. The magic string
%OS_VERSION% is substituted with the current VERSION_ID (major Fedora version), which can be used, for example, for pulling correct versions of repositories from Fedora's Copr.
Then the module installs the packages declared under
rpm-ostree install, it removes the packages declared under
rpm-ostree override remove. If there are packages declared under both
remove: a hybrid command
rpm-ostree remove <packages> --install <packages> is used, which should allow you to switch required packages for other ones.
rpm-ostree module supports a temporary (waiting for
rpm-ostree issue #233) fix for packages that install into
/opt/. Installation for packages that install into folder names declared under
optfix: are fixed using some symlinks.
type: rpm-ostree repos: - https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/atim/starship/repo/fedora-%OS_VERSION%/atim-starship-fedora-%OS_VERSION%.repo # when including COPR repos, use the %OS_VERSION% magic string - https://pkgs.tailscale.com/stable/fedora/tailscale.repo install: - python3-pip - libadwaita remove: - firefox - firefox-langpacks
When removing certain packages, some problem probably in upstream
rpm-ostree causes a
depsolve issue similar to below. Removed packages are still present in the underlying ostree repository, what
remove does is "hide" them from the system, it doesn't reclaim disk space.
